Buttermilk & Bourbon

Nationally recognized chef Jason Santos’ Buttermilk & Bourbon delivers Southern hospitality to guests in the Back Bay and Watertown.

Drawing on the South’s trademark charm, the restaurant offers a vibrant, cozy atmosphere with an innovative American menu featuring Southern influences. Santos, who currently owns and operates Boston’s Citrus & Salt and Abby Lane, channels his love of New Orleans and all things Southern to transport guests to the Bayou by way of Buttermilk & Bourbon.

Guests can enjoy pork belly cracklings; BBQ Shrimp; house-made biscuits; oyster chowder; crispy boudin; and house-fried chicken served either Southern-style, Nashville-style, or with sweet and spicy or white BBQ sauce. An oyster bar will also serve up a variety of local oysters as well as peel & eat shrimp. Buttermilk & Bourbon serves up hurricanes-on-tap, large-batch cocktails, and a selection of bourbon-based drinks.
